Abstract: In this paper a method for addressing temperature effects using Lamb waves is developed with application to baseline comparison damage detection. The proposed method is based on baseline signal stretch with an improved minimum residual allowing correction over a larger temperature range. The effectiveness of the proposed approach in detecting (artificial) damages is demonstrated experimentally over a large temperature. The method is also shown to accurately detect and localise a crack in an aluminium panel and actual impact damage on a CFRP panel.
